Format: Paperback
This book covers everything from the history of color photography to color theory, filters, film, digital photography, preservation and even breezes over some alternative processes at the end (thumbs up!).

"Assignments" thoughout the book encourages your own thinking and the development of your skills, and if you don't mind the "textbook" approach, they are very useful.

The book does indeed feel like a complete guide to color.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By John Roberts on December 30, 2008
Format: Paperback
I'm not usually a big fan of required readings for classes. This was a book required for a color photography class. This book is a nice starter for someone that is getting into color photography for the first time, but has a good knowledge of photography. This book seems repetitive and probably is about twice as long as need be. Has some good recommendations but because the way its written has a very limited audience.
If you were a B&W photographer and is trying to get into digital color photography this is a great book. If anything else, there's plenty of better books out there.
